and george w. bush began the second term as president and the minority rights you have in the u.s. senate, that requires more than 60 votes to usually get things done, was very instrumental in making sure that the second term of george w. bush wasn't a runaway freight train. now, what is true and i think progressives are coming from is that president obama's first two years in office, there was an unprecedented number of filibuster. it wasn't being used on big matters but on everything. but with the agreement was able to do last night was on some lower court judges as well as lower court cabinet positions, they're easier to pass as well as to be able to pass some procedural moves. very incremental change, thomas. the white house happy with it. progressives not so much. >> all right. so people that know the movie "mr. smith goes to washington" this is not like that. >> exactly. that was what liberals and progressives wanted the most. if you wanted to actually filibuster, you had to do it on the floor in person as long as it took. that was not part of the refor s s and that left some people
. ohio delivered the presidency for george w. bush. how we remember. this might be why reince priebus, reelected as the rnc chair, is so optimistic about the electoral future for the republicans. >> no state is that reliably a blue state. but it's up to all of us to decide if we're willing to fight for these states. it takes work. it's not going to happen overnight. but from what i've seen in wisconsin, we can make it happen. in two years, we all want to hear the words and the headlines republicans everywhere. >> well, this is the electoral map from the 2012 election. president obama won by four points in a large margin in the electoral college. this is what happens under the republicans' everywhere strategy. president obama still wins by four points, but loses the presidency in an electoral landslide. as long as this plan is out there, republicans will continue to downplay it. >> i would not be for it. i don't think there is any sort of national movement. and you have sort of convinced me that in virginia, there may not even be any state movement. it may be an isolated legislator. >>
presence put together by jim baker and george h. w. bush and the success in the engagement of it. but subsequent to that, we have seen a completely different scene. that is what i would describe as three alarmers and two alarmers. we about a dozen fires popping up here in different parts of the world within all of a sudden you have people who don't have the -- a lot of people in congress who don't have the previous reference have basically come to the conclusion that the world has changed and we can't afford nor do we have the public support for global open gaugement. -- engagement. when you talk to people back home and you say why do we give so much foreign aid? it is literally like saying, you know, you need to diet and lose a lot of weight and you get a haircut and solve the problem. the amount of foreign aid and presence now is shrinking to the point where it's relatively insignificant compared to it. but yet the will to support that going forward and even step out and say well we ought to be more engaged here or do more here or these are the functions that are working. it's
who spent plenty of time in the minority, they have been in the minority when george w. bush had republican majorities in both houses. they saw the tax cuts go through, they have seen other instances where they're fearful enough that the worm will turn, and they want to be in a position where they can use their minority status for leverage. and if you put that together with the other reality, ezra, which is that all the other 100 senators who have egos like to use holds, sometimes even with their own president, to block action on a nomination. to give them a 2 x 4 across the forehead to gain something that may be entirely extranneous. >> thank you. >> the part of the election that people couldn't just start -- stop talking about. it was beyonce, and that is next. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one series from brother. easy to use. it's the ultimate combination of speed, small size, and low-cost printing.
's myanmar speech and john mccain snuck in a couple of winks during george w. bush's state of the union in 2007. a sleepless night is getting more common. a full 30% of civilian workers get less than six hours of sleep, says the cdc. the night shift is the worst. for instance, 70% of night shift workers and transportation and warehousing are sleep deprived. the best sleep? the finance industry along with educators at 27%. they don't take their laptops and phones to bed. the glow can simulate daylight and simulate sleep. with the 24-hour global economy it's tough to get unplugged. so businesses like pod time are seeing orders rise for stacked sleeping pods, stereos that help you get in the mood and racks for bedtime reading torl put away your laptop as well. insomniac classes are on the increase as well. late night yoga and meditation and they say bring your pajamas. and sleeping pill ads are everywhere. americans are doing just about anything and anywhere to grab some zs. and in fact, chris, you are probably wondering where i am right now. >> i wasn't actually, but -- >> where are you?
, but man there has been unprecedented disrespect for this president. when did -- george w. bush didn't go to the inauguration mitt romney didn't go to the inauguration. but they haven't impeached him for his private life or called his wife a lesbian. there is no doubt some of them are racist, but their contempt is reserved for the working class of america. because that's who they keep choosing to hurt time and time again. these guys choose to hurt you. >> stephanie: one question -- you don't mean lesbian like a bad thing, right? >> did i say lesbian? >> stephanie: yes. >> i believe the president doesn't like turtles. >> stephanie: okay. 46 minutes after the hour. back with more fridays with fugelsang on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: talk radio you can dance too. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. vanguard is all-new with a world
, republicans have not had a majority of votes. even though george w. bush served two terms, he did not get a majority in 2000 and barely got one in 2004? >> i'm not one to minimize the danger and challenge of the republican party. losing 25 senate seats this year -- president obama only got 51% of the vote. the economy is looking great. a lot of democratic incumbents looked people ribble. the senate cannot be gerrymandered. it looked like a clean a snapshot of the country. for republicans to win 8 waterboarded -- while democrats one -- republicans will 8 and democrats won 25, that is dangerous. we need to figure out what went wrong in 2012. i'm not for endless naval gazing. there are plenty of fights to be had. where can we cooperate with president obama? in some ways, you lose an election, and you think about it for a few months. and you get back right on the horse and try to start writing again and figure out what we believe and and what fights we want to have and what policies we want to -- want to propose. host: politico wrote about you -- what have you been doing? guest: it is interes
another recent president, george w. bush, for the most polarizing presidents the way they put it of all time. chris wallace joins me now, the anchor of "fox news sunday." good morning, chris. >> food morning, martha. martha: what is the meaning of that number do you think? >> well it shows there is not a lot of common ground for the president. this was his polling number last year for the campaign year. i don't think given his inaugural address which pushed a very assertive liberal agenda that it will be much different this year, perhaps even the next four years. there is not a lot of common ground with this president. either you like him or really don't like him. he is perceived as a liberal, and somebody who will push a liberal agenda. martha: yeah. i have the same thought in terms of bringing things together. we did hear a lot about hope and change. when president obama then senator, ran against george bush he talked so much about the divisiveness in washington and how things were going to change. you wonder, sort of, how dispointing that is for him, on a personal level. and we'll no

reagan was president and george h.w. bush was running and so was pat robertson. president reagan didn't endoargs his own -- didn't endorse his own vice president until robertson dropped out of the race. i don't think joe biden is going to run. >> you don't think so? >> i don't think so. >> john: i would like him to. >> he will be 74. >> he will do whatever he wants. >> i think he will be a wonderful statesman like jimmy carter was. >> john: he will be very useful. he'll do public speaking. he will do whatever he wants. he's such a powerful advocate for progressive causes. to be honest, it is gate everyone is putting a laurel wreath around hillary's head. i think dennis kucinich kept a lot of the democrats honest when they were running in 2008 and 2004. and i wouldn't be broken hearted if elizabeth warren ran against hillary. i think if the democrats give it to her then that's going to be really kind of a drag and disappointing. i help to is a bit more interesting. >> yep, i do too. all right. it is time to take a break. so let's do that now. >> john: when we come back, i with a tonigh
